Hello and welcome to our next edition of our 2019 Monthly Leadership Tips: your 'once a month'  'bite-sized' chunks of practical leadership wisdom!

Many of you may have noticed the new look for our newsletter. Some might have even noticed our refreshed website! We've made it easier to view the website on all devices, and have created a new learning management system for our current and alumni program participants. If you are an alumni of the DiA program - please feel free to get in touch if you wish to access the new LMS. Mel will send you your login.

This month's 'Leadership Bite', is about the 'A really simple version of coaching'. Once again we use the simple format of sharing one of our simple info-visuals, and provide a brief overview of the concept, why it is useful and how to apply it. Again, this 'bite' can be saved and printed off as a PDF. Feel free to use it in team meetings, coaching sessions or workshops! We then also share two blogs that we think you'll find of value.

This month we share :
  • Leadership Bites - a really simple version of coaching
  • A simple daily 5 minute mindfulness activity
  • One of our Practical Leadership Actions - How do I create a team environment?
Found something useful? Why not pay it forward and share a copy with your colleagues! Forward a copy of this email or send this link to join the DiA Monthly Leadership Tips list!

We also use the content we share each month, in the work we do in our consulting practice. Feel free to get in touch to find out more about anything in this newsletter or other blogs on our website.  Enjoy!

Simple daily 5 minute mindfulness activity

We recently attended a fabulous workshop run for parents by The Resilience Project and it reminded us of a practical 5 minute mindfulness activity we turned into a simple visual, that is targeted to those who like practical ways to practice reflection.

#2: How do I create a 'team' environment?

We have developed a series of practical leadership actions responsive to major themes that have emerged through our work with over 600 Discovery in Action® (Leading People) program participants.  We have observed six major themes that have consistently emerged as participants have grappled with the question: When do people perform at their best?  This is the second of those - How do I create a 'team environment'?

Generated through our exposure to on-the-ground leaders as well as various examples from blogs, articles and books, we have built a working set of ideas for each of these themes.
